The Hong Kong Virtual University (HKVU) Programme is a collaborative project funded by UGC's Restructuring and Collaboration Fund. The objectives of this programme are to provide a networked virtual campus for connecting the local tertiary institutions and to provide students with a wider range of subject choices and greater flexibility in learning provision. HKVU offers a wide range of courses jointly provided by the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, City University of Hong Kong, Lingnan University, The Hong Kong Institute of Education, and The University of Hong Kong.

The HKVU courses are delivered in the form of blended learning mode - an effective learning approach by integrating face-to-face and online media. Typically lecture materials and learning aids are delivered via the use of learning management system including eLearning Open Platform (eLOP), Open Canvas and HKMOOC supported by HKVU. Tutorials and laboratory classes in contrast are conducted through face-to-face meetings. Such approach allows students to study anytime, anywhere and at their own pace, but yet preserves the face-to-face interaction amongst students and instructors.
